Crazy Nerds has been nominated for ‘Wanna Know You Better’ question challenge, by 2 bloggers – Era and Introseeker. Thank you both!
I’ve already expressed too many details of myself in the last two tags, and here’s another challenge posed to know more about me.
Expand to read
- Title the blog post as “Wanna know you better!!” (try to make your post pictorial as this will make it look interesting).
- Mention Riya’s blog and the one who nominated you.
- Copy all the questions and answer them one by one.
- You may create your own questions for your targets (it will be fun).
- Pass the game as a challenge to any of your favorite bloggers and mention them in your post.
Answers to the questions posed:
- Have you ever been foolhardy? When? Why? Describe briefly.
I don’t think I’ve been foolishly bold to take up any risk. I usually reason before taking risks, unless it’s an emergency.
- How do you prefer the curtains, drawn or pulled apart?
This depends on the hour of the day. In my room, I keep them pulled apart in the morning to get some light, and leave them drawn from forenoon to evening leaving my room shady, and open them wide again until I sleep. It’s good to be in the dark, at times.
- What kind of a “dream home” do you dream about?
I guess I’m already living in my dream home. I love the place. If at all I need an addition, I’d make some arrangements for a mini library.
His existence was passive. He was ebbing away from pleasures and surrounded himself with the dark in a toneless residence.
He strongly believed that colours deceived.
But, he was active in capturing the lies, Continue reading
Reluctance to participate
in a fancy dress competition,
not wanting to remove
that favourite dress of yours!
Sing a mad song with wrong lyrics
in the company of neighbours,
which you now wouldn’t
even dare to mutter a line!
Wake up from deep sleep
just to give that foolish smile,
on hearing that favourite music
playing between ads on TV! Continue reading
It’s a theme park run only for adults, by a lady with supernatural powers, and the caution board indicating “Mind Your Head” doesn’t mean anything physical but is more surreal.
Only brave ones come here because the person entering the door forgets all memories of the outside world that’s dumped in their heads and gets inside only with memories of a 5-year-old.

This is in response to ‘The Saturday Six Word Story Prompt’ by Shweta of ‘My Random Ramblings’. The prompt for this week is ‘Leave’. I was left alone with boredom and so there are quite many six-word stories on ‘Leave’.
Leaves are equally anticipated and hated!
Eyes rewind memories when leaving school.
Farewell – none wanted to leave home!
Leave your burdens to fly high.
Don’t leave heavy words remain unsaid!
Sunny came to his balcony with a cup of tea to read in his morning hours. He spilled it entirely on the floor accidentally.
He stood up to make a cup of instant coffee to save time.
The book in hand that usually speaks through printed words, seemed to question him Continue reading
She has been abused, physically.
Her scars are hers.
She has been abused, mentally.
Her tears are hers.
She has fallen in love and hoped.

Crazy Nerds has been nominated for ‘10 of my favourite feelings’ tag, by 3 bloggers – Curious Mind, Shweta and Simon. Thank you all!
About this tag
The tag has its origin from Xandria’s blog. In her own words,
“I think if there’s one thing that this quarantine has taught me it’s that I’ve become so much more appreciative of the simple things in life. I came across a couple YouTube videos called ‘My Favourite Feelings’ and I absolutely loved it.”
The motive of this tag is to reflect the happy little things in our life and appreciate them. Continue reading
Her mind was spinning,
so fast, like a broken
She came from a land of hills
from a place so high
with definite height.
Hills grow in inches
or slide a little,
but it was certain.
She’s uncertain, now onshore, Continue reading
Elena was attending her magic lectures in Pearl Paradise castle, which stood majestically in the moonlit sky as a tough competitor to Hogwarts.
Phoenix, big thanks to you for tagging me to ‘The Small Joys’ tag. She’s an author, also helping out aspiring writers through her writing clubs. Do check out her blog.
Rules for this tag are simple.
- Thank the blogger who tagged you.
- List 15 of your Small Joys. (They can be as weird, random, and silly as you want to make them.)
- Tag 5 blogger friends who bring you joy (and feel free to say why they bring you joy). Have fun with it!
My 15 Small Joys:
➟ Watching squirrels eat, esp. walnuts. They are very tactful. They climb the tree, come back with a nut, sit in a comfortable position, bang it hard on the wall repeatedly until the shell breaks, and finally taste the nuts inside. Hardworking naughty species!
➟ Beautiful sunset accompanied by the sounds of birds flying back to their nest – It’s a visual feast. Continue reading
I dream and dream,
through day and night,
like it’s my only errand.
With the rise of dawn,
dreams cheer me up
for an endurance test.
During the day,
they give me hope
and sustain me alive.
I keep following my dreams
forgetting the surroundings,
yet observing them keenly. Continue reading

This is in response to ‘The Saturday Six Word Story Prompt’ by Shweta of ‘My Random Ramblings’. The prompt for this week is ‘Travel’, and here are my six-word stories on it.
Solo travel – scary yet liberating investment!
Learnt to travel;
Learnt from travel!
Varun loves summers, and so had planned to tick off an item from his bucket list of visiting Egypt on the summer solstice, where a viewer standing at the Sphinx could enjoy the sun setting precisely between two of the Great Pyramids – Khufu and Khafre.
Unfortunately, the lockdown collapsed his plans, the result of which he had to settle with a friend who was to trek to a hilltop tower in a nearby town.
He started his climb with sorrows brimming, but the mountain’s breeze soothed his wounds, Continue reading
- Save some tears before getting into Hogwarts now. You’ll most probably cry at the end for ruining your childhood or teen memories.
- Spoilers Ahead! (They may not be in order, though.)
Forget the playful Harry you have in mind. Now, try imagining him as an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic and the father of three school-going children. Initially, even doing this seemed quite difficult for me but was also slightly convincing that muggles aren’t the only species who are overworked. All our wizards from the original Harry Potter (HP) series are very well placed in their professional sphere.
The book starts with the elucidation of the stranded father-son relationship between Potter and his second son, Albus. Continue reading
This is the 4th ‘Awesome Blogger Award’ nomination to ‘Crazy Nerds’. It’s a great pleasure! Thank you, Nabeela, for the nomination.
Nabeela runs a blog in which she shares her personal experiences, aspirations, and observations on worldly events. Check her out if you haven’t come across her blog before. She’s a calm soul with amazing voice, which I recently heard on her new YouTube channel.

An update on awards
‘Crazy Nerds’ has been nominated for too many awards lately. I find it harder to fit them in my schedule and write responses. So, I’ve come up with a decision to accept only the award nominations and tags that are new to this blog. This is the last response post I’m taking up for an award already received.
I appreciate all the love and recognition you show towards ‘Crazy Nerds’! However, I also hope you understand my stand.
My answers to the questions from ‘Stay at Home Mom’:
- One habit that you hate the most in you?
- What is the one thing that you feel annoying in another person?
When one repeats saying the same stuff again and again, I get annoyed and lose my temper.
The world is sore, and
the sky is stormy.
When the going gets strenuous,
not all of us seek shelters. Continue reading
